Tennessee Titans vs New England Patriots live stream. Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots: Prediction, preview, pick to win, Patriots hope to put drama behind them in AFC divisional round vs. Titans
KICKOFF: Saturday,8:15 p.m. ET, Gillette Stadium, TV: CBS, Jim Nantz, Tony Romo, Tracy Wolfson (field reporter), Jay Feely (field reporter). SERIES HISTORY: 42nd all-time meeting. Patriots lead series, 24-16-1, and the teams have split two playoff games. The Titans have never won at Gillette Stadium, with some memorable losses marking their shortcomings. They lost 59-0 in 2009, tying the most lopsided loss in NFL history in the process. Also, the Titans lost in the 2003 playoffs in one of the coldest games in playoff history, 17-14. KEYS TO THE GAME: This may be a matchup between the talent behind two Heisman Trophies on one side and the aura of five Lombardi Trophies on the other.
He also is 6-0 against Mike Mularkey-coached teams. But that hasn’t changed the approach for Brady, who is preparing for his 35th playoff start in the aftermath of recent reports suggesting discord between himself, coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft. In a joint statement last week, all three men brushed aside any insinuation of strife at the top of one of the NFL’s jewel franchises. Brady reiterated on Thursday that his mind remains on the field. We do what we always do. We show up to work and try to do the best we can do,” he said.
The general belief is there are four contenders for the Super Bowl in the NFC, two in the AFC. Let’s see if Tennessee or Jacksonville can prove that theory wrong this weekend. Both AFC South representatives are significant underdogs, the Titans at New England on Saturday night, the Jaguars at Pittsburgh on Sunday. For weeks, it’s been presumed Steelers vs. Patriots will decide who goes to the Super Bowl from the conference. The Titans and Jaguars want to have their say. They’re the champs and these are the types of teams you’ve got to beat if you want to be the champs,” says Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey, who is 0-5 against the Patriots.
